3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled 330 ml. bottle @ Tilburgs Bierfestival 2015. Hazy deep orange, creamy white. Nose is mellow mandarin hop, stone fruit, fruity bitter, tad too malt forward,… Taste is somewhat sweetish sugar, light honey, candy, mellow mandarin, orange peel, caramel,… A bit too malt forward in body & taste but good still. Quite decent. (Thanks for sharing!)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Maker: BrauKunstKeller, Michelstadt, Germany ***
Beer: Pale Ale ***
Style: American Pale Ale (APA) ***
ALC. VOL.: 5.1% ***
"Made using Cascade, Citra & Amarillo hops." ***
Colour: Bright, hazy orange; big creamy head. ***
Nose: Grapefruit, pinewood, herbs. Some yeast. ***
Texture: Medium body, a bit watery still. Firm. Moderate carbonation. ***
Taste: Bitter grapefruit, herbs, notable pinewood. Then orange, thus a bit sweeter than before, floral hops, a bit of resin there. The latter is much(!) more notceable in the bitter, hoppy finale. Citrus wiff still present, but overpowered by bitter resinous notes, which also account for the long-lasting, bitter aftertaste. ***
Impressions: A model "medium-ABV" pale ale, with agreeable resinous notes, fruitiness and herbal essences. What it lacks is entirely due to the moderate ABV, namely the depth of malts that comes with the alcohol. Otherwise, really good and eminently drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught. Pale yellow with white head. Aroma is some maltiness, tropical fruits and quite dominant green apple. In taste malty sweet, grapefruit like bitterness and low acetaldehyde. Medium to low body, medium bitterness. Could be nice pale ale without acetaldehyde.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
330 ml bottle sampled April 2014. Unclear orange body with a small off-white head. Decent aroma with citric fruit, peaches, pale malt and hint of caramel. Flavor is soft malty, fruit, oranges, orange zest and moderate bitterness. A bit sweet but still refreshing. Medium body and average aftertaste. Totally OK, nothing extraordinary.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Excessively dry beer, with bitterness throughout. Grapefruit, tropical fruit, resin - pleasant hoppiness, though the flavour subsides quickly and the harsh bitterness lingers on. A beer for extreme hopheads, too unbalanced for my liking.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Bierothek best by April 17, 2015, 11:37am. Hazed amber with a lasting off-white head. Resinous aroma hops are raw, orange-like and minty; malt is cookie batter and cereals and dry pet food. Moderately sweet with strong bitterness, it’s resinous and grassy and orange-y, the finish is powdery like raw hop pellets and the malt falls apart quickly. Pretty rough around the edges, unbalanced with the excessive bitterness.
